Choosing the right foundation can be an expensive nightmare at times. We have all been there but with my top tips changing foundations shouldn’t be a daunting task. In part one I covered the tips for your various skin types in this second part im talking all things undertones, finish and application. 

What’s your undertone?

The best way to figure this out is by looking at the skin at your wrists in natural light. If they look slightly green, you have warm undertones. If your veins are more blue/purply in colour, your undertones are cool. If it’s a combination of the two, you have a neutral undertone. 

Choose your finish

Once you’ve determined your skin’s undertone and skin type, now you want to choose your finish. Key words are often in the name of the foundation like Dewy, Luminizing, Matte, Semi Matte, sheer…

Deciding which one is right for you depends upon which look you like best. It also depends on your skin type.

Dewy Or a Luminizing Finish can work great on drier or more dehydarated skins. Matte foundations are great if you have oily or combination skin. You don’t want a lot of sheen and shimmer going on, as this will only translate to a very oily appearance.

Trial It Before You Buy It

We’ve all purchased something at a counter under guidance from the sales person….. got home used it and it’s the wrong colour! Ugh I can’t tell you how much this annoys me. Samples are hard to come by but only because they’re limited. If you bring in your own sample pot I find they’re always happy to pop some in for you. Go home, try it on in natural light and make sure it’s right for you. Do not test if on your hand as a shade match, your hand will be a different shade than your face.

What’s the best tool to apply your foundation???

Personally, I love a dense Kabuki brush to apply foundation, this will give you a flawless and seamless finish and will do the job quicker for you.

Try.

  • Nima Flat head kabuki
  • Blank Canvas
  • Preparing your skin properly

No matter what skin type you have, preparing your skin for makeup is key to a perfect finish.

  • Don’t use too much foundation. Apply it sparingly to the parts of your skin that need to be evened out – this will leave you with a more natural finish.
  • Keep your skin hydrated with either hyaluronic acid, weekly masks or skin spritz sprays. Your makeup will glide on and look so much better.

That’s it!! I promise you if you follow these guidelines, you will get the perfect foundation for you!
